330ml bottle from Legacy, tasted at Brian’s. Pours a very dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is slightly sweet, burnt malt. Same character taste with lots of hoppines and some black (not just dark) chocolate notes. Amazing!

ALIBALI (1122) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2016
Es wird geklotzt und zwar kräftig. Der Übergang zwischen IP und IS scheint zu verschwimmen. Die, für zum Beispiel bei DeMolen ISs typische, scharf medizinische und fast nordisch eisige Kühle, findet auch bei diesem Imperial Porter statt. Für mich kaum ein Unterschied erkennbar. Höllisch heftig, ein Dauerbeschuss von Röst,Schoko und Hops. IBU Power inklusive. RUND !!!! 0,2/3,5Euro in der MIKKELLER BAR Barcelona. Tap.

Bottle. Black with a light tan frothy head with good lacings. Aromas of roasted and chocolate malts with notes of toast, coffee, sugar, smoke and dried cranberries. Softly carbonated, velvety and fully bodied. Roast malt sweetness with some bittereness and some fruity notes. Lasting dry finish.

Fules (970) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 23, 2016
Óriási csodaszép kávébarna, nagyon tartós tömör hab. Színe koromfekete. Illata határozott pörkölt jegyekkel rendelkezik, némi édeskés, karamellás beütéssel. Íze erősen pörkölt, már túl van a feketekávés jellegen is. Picit édeskés, kevés karamellel, és persze füstös. Testes sör.
